Staff Reviews

Ava, CJ, Jordan and Martha have been best friends since kindergarten. Now, they are navigating the joys and challenges of life together as high school seniors. We know one thing from the beginning: One of these girls is destined to be the President of the United States one day. The mystery, of course, is who? Readers will be drawn to this supportive group of friends, much like The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series (except with no traveling or pants).

— Jordan

From the creator of the hit TV series The Bold Type comes an empowering and heartfelt novel about a future female president's senior year of high school.

Ava, CJ, Jordan, and Martha (listed in alphabetical order out of fairness)have been friends since kindergarten. Now they're in their senior year, facing their biggest fears about growing up and growing apart. But there's more than just college on the horizon. One of these girls is destined to become the president of the United States.The mystery, of course, is which girl gets the gig.

Is it Ava, the picture-perfect artist who's secretly struggling to figure out where she belongs? Or could it be CJ, the one who's got everything figured out . . . except how to fix her terrible SAT scores? Maybe it's Jordan, the group's resident journalist, who knows she's ready for more than their small Ohio suburb can offer. And don't overlook Martha, who will have to overcome all the obstacles that stand in the way of her dreams.

This is the story of four best friends who have one another's backs through every new love, breakup, stumble, and success -- proving that great friendships can help young women achieve anything . . . even a seat in the Oval Office.
Sarah Watson is the creator of the hit TV series The Bold Type, which the New York Times described as "Sex and the Single Girl for millennials."
